School can be stressful. Friendships, making sports teams, keeping up with a job and all the homework can sometimes feel overwhelming.
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. – Psalm 4:8 (NIV)
Just because that’s God’s best for your life, doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen automatically, however. It takes some effort on your part. You have to work on getting your emotions and thoughts lined up to God’s word.
Today’s Truth: God’s Best for your life is that you live in peace.
That becomes easier as you read and study the Bible. As you read God’s word, it becomes more exciting to you and it becomes what you think about, rather than all the stressful things going on around you. As you spend time in God’s word, it’s easier to be at peace.
You don’t have to live your life in a place of fear and torment. God’s best for your life is that you live in peace.
Take a Moment to Pray: Jesus, I ask for your peace this school year. Sometimes school can be overwhelming, but I ask for your help and wisdom this year. Help me to live in your peace. In Your name, Amen.
